1. Marianne Burke: Update
a. Completed data collection on study testing whether clinical evidence technology improves patient skin problem outcomes in primary care. Marianne would like feedback on presentation of results.
b. Design of the study was discussed passionately: the inclusion of diagnoses that might not be amenable to treatment may mask the actual effectiveness of the tool.
c. Possible follow up study based on provider characteristics: baseline use of technology, use of Visual Dx by the intervention arm, use of other technology by the control arm
d. What is the story: in an information-rich environment, one resource is unlikely to make a difference
i. The story may be in the provider’s feedback re: technology assessment, not in the PROs
e. Next step:
i. Identify the questions that need to be answered next: establishing a methodology for studying the value of health information resources
